    The thing about blackface is it's only racist if it's done to mock black people, which this clearly isn't.

    Do you know what blackface is? Black face isn't putting make up in order to shoot pictures of yourself wearing clothes most people can't afford. Black face is tied to a performance denigrating black people by making a mockery of the entire race. Wearing dark make up is not racism anymore than LeBron James posing with some white woman is.

    Kali, while I respect your crusade against racists and racism, I think we need to discuss more substantive issues than just what celebrities like Halle and Beyonce are doing.

    In this case, if Beyonce is okay with it, then I'm okay with it.

    Beyonce is a dumb bimbo.

    Did I say I thought it was racist? NO! Lets not turn this into a bash Kali thread and focus on the issue. In other words: answer the poll and leave your personal thoughts about me out of it. I did not say it was racist so lets keep it moving please.

    Marrying someone doesn't mean she's smart. But she's quite a talented musician and business woman, so she's definitely not a bimbo.

    Being in business and making money in pretty much everything you do shows some kind of intelligence. How else can we explain Glenn Beck and Fat Limbaugh?

    The reason I pointed out her being married to Jay-Z is because a lot of folks seem to equate Bimbo with unintelligence and being loose/Ho. That is why I said that.

    Oh and about the smart thing? Jay-Z did the smart thing and put a ring on it
